Part of the Church of England, Jacob’s Ladder is a non-religious community of those who don’t see themselves as the churchy type, and something that those who don’t believe can really enjoy being a valued part of.
There are 3 bits to us...
Free to enter events, held on the third Sunday of each month at 7pm in Hugglescote Social Club. During the evening there’s a team rock music quiz, rock and prog videos, food, all sorts of fun and games and a couple of more serious bits when we look for just a few minutes at the Christian take on a life issue, and 2-minutes of prayers shown on the big screen. And the bar is open all night. Reckon they must be OK because in the 3 years we’ve been running just about everyone who gives it a try ends up coming again and again…just like the Quo song! Many of online actvities come out of The Main Stage...check out the video at the foot of this page.
"Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image" is one of the Ten Commandments which, according to the Book of Deuteronomy, were spoken by God to the Israelites and then written on stone tablets. Literally, graven images were idols, worshipped as a replacement for God and the cause of much human misjudgement. We are not about to worship our art here- but we do want you to find the opportunity to express yourselves creatively and visually with us as part of the Jacob’s Ladder experience. Look out for: Competitions (we launched a successful one in the summer- there will be more in the future), Arty camaraderie at Ladder events (try a new skill, challenge or just have a bit of fun) and Collaborations and exhibitions (hold that thought, and let us know if you want to be involved).
Jacob Bladdered was founded by Debbie Page and Chris Haywood after visiting Rails and Ales festival, we wanted to incorporate real ales along with heavy metal music, something we are very passionate about. The first beer festival was held in 2019, with a roaring success, a night of locally crafted beers, ciders, and live music. We outsource to local breweries within a 30 miles radius, that are not always sold in pubs, best of what the brewery has to offer. Next year, we will be bigger and better than ever, with 2 nights of craft ale, cider, music, and dancing.
